Virtues & Policies

Christ’s College is an Anglican School committed to and striving to instil Christian virtues.

As a community of parents, staff and students, we are committed to fostering the development of character through nurturing seven core virtues. These virtues underpin our approach to all aspects of College life, including pastoral care and discipline. 

Honesty

includes truthfulness

Learning

means striving to become an independent, lifelong learner, and recognition of others’ right to learn

Respect

means respect of self (integrity, humility and dignity, tidy appearance), for others (tolerance, forgiveness, generosity, kindness, fair play, good manners), and their property, and for the school (reputation and property)

Spirituality

means an appreciation that in seeking a fullness of life we need to look beyond our material needs and wants

Justice

means acceptance of people different from ourselves, including those of different race and culture, and fairness in all our dealings with them

Compassion

means generosity towards those less fortunate than ourselves

Stewardship

means recognition of the good we have received from the past so that it may be preserved or enhanced
